  • Description:

    The Carson City Mint was only in business sporadically for 20 years then closed its doors for good. But to coin collectors, any coin carrying the infamous "CC" mint-mark is of high priority. Since the Carson City Mint was so small, it could only make a small amount of coins, lending to some of the lowest mintage coins. Coins minted at the Nevada based mint are difficult to find and thus, can carry high premiums. The Carson City Mint produced only 7.7 million dimes in 1877, which can mainly be found in lower grades. The 1877-CC Seated Liberty Dime is considered to be in fine condition, exhibiting heavy wear on both sides of the coin. Although fine condition coins are very worn, the date is usually fairly readable.

    The Seated Liberty Dime series began its production in 1837 and continued until 1891. The Seated Liberty design was used on the dime, quarter, and half dollar and would be replaced by the infamous Barber coin series. The dime underwent numerous revisions throughout its cycle as the US dime, creating varietal types for collectors. Some examples of these varieties are large and small dates, stars and no stars, drapery being removed, re-struck mint-marks, and a die crack at various stages of production. Another variation, that occurred among the dimes, was the placement of the mint-mark; some were struck above the bow, on the reverse, and underneath. The Seated Liberty collection is not for the faint of heart and is mainly popular among experienced collectors.
